The Weill Cornell medicine Conflict of Interest (COI) office is charged by the Office of Research Integrity to ensure that the research and clinical endeavors undertaken by our faculty and staff are unbiased by any external commitments and interests. It is our mission to ensure that the interests of any individual responsible for the design, conduct, reporting, or direct administration of research at Weill Cornell Medicine do not exert undue influence over the responsible conduct of research.
For more information about COI policies at Weill Cornell Medicine, federal regulation, reporting requirements, and management of conflicts, please contact us to schedule a consultation.
The integrity of Cornell University’s research is of the utmost importance. The principles and procedures of this policy assure that university research personnel will report their external commitments and financial interests in a timely manner and that the real and apparent financial conflicts of interests of research personnel will be identified and responsibly managed. This policy complements the university’s policy on Conflicts of Interest and Commitment and establishes the Financial Conflicts of Interest Committee, and for Weill Cornell Medicine units, the Conflicts Advisory Panel as review bodies for real and apparent conflicts of interest related to research. This policy promotes compliance with all applicable federal and state laws, regulations, and policies regarding financial conflicts of interest.
